I have two decades of experience as an educator with a diverse international teaching experience of courses taught in Brazil, Singapore, the United States, and workshops and presentations done in museums and cultural institutions in Germany, France, and Switzerland. In my exchanges with audiences from all over the world, I aim to reinforce the importance of animation in cultural and intellectual formation, which provides learners with a creative medium to express their ideas and also to expand their understanding of animation. I have been mentoring students in the production of experimental animation shorts as well as design related projects.
I am currently teaching at the University of Texas at Dallas, School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication (ATEC). I have a Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University Singapore, School of Art, Design, and Media.
